About

Bruised Skate Sling

In 2009 Kasey and Stevie skated together on a little league in Utah. Kasey had started to make these little skate carrying straps for fellow league mates. Stevie had one of the first prototypes of the Skate Sling and used it to carry her skates everywhere she went.

In 2011, Stevie attended RollerCon and used her roller skate holder to haul her skates and gear around from class to scrimmage and everywhere in between. Many people stopped her and asked her what that thing was! This got the wheels turning and Stevie noticed what a pain it was to lug around skates and gear.

It had been years since Stevie and Kasey had even seen each other but Stevie knew she had to get Kasey to start making these things, there was an obvious need for this and there was NOTHING in existence. The days following that RollerCon, Stevie tried to come up with exactly how to call up Kasey and pitch her the idea. All of Stevie's fretting must have conjured something up in the derby verse because out of the blue, Kasey called Stevie and said that she had been thinking about making these straps and she was the first person who came to mind when she started thinking of getting a business partner. Stevie was floored and they set up and meeting the very next day.

It was as if the derby gods had their hand in things. The meeting was a success and Bruised Skate Stuff was born early August 2011 in a little coffee shop on 25th street in Ogden, UT.

Kasey has since left the company to pursue other life long dreams, leaving Stevie to continue to supply the derby world with our Over the Shoulder Roller Skate holders.

Despite all of the ups and downs, I know we have a terrific product and work tirelessly to provide the best quality product and service. In the past 2 years, there have been a dozen or so copy cats that have popped up. I know ours is superior, plus we have over 50 colors and patterns to choose from. I love the derby community and work endlessly to donate, sponsor, and otherwise support all that I can. I am so happy to be where we are and am excited to grow this thing to all new heights! Thanks for taking the time to read about how Bruised came about. I have to thank everyone who has been supportive and helped Bruised to get where it is today!

XOXO
Vulgar (or Stevie)
